Dragonfly Cottage Eagle River
*3 blocks away you will find the public beach on Lake Superior
*Famous Fitzgerald Steakhouse blocks away
This 1866 farmhouse sits across from the historic county seat buildings of Eagle River, Michigan. You will love this 4 bedroom, 2 ½ bath home which is only a short walk from the Eagle River Falls, the Lake Superior shoreline, and the very popular Fitzgerald’s Smokehouse, Restaurant and Bar.
There are so many fun activities to do in the beautiful Keweenaw Peninsula such as: hiking, biking, kayaking, fishing, exploring area beaches, hunting for agates and yooperlite, exploring old copper mines, or just relaxing on your lovely wrap around porch taking in the view!
If you choose to stay with us during the fall months, feel free to grab a couple apples off the trees to create a delicious crisp or apple pie. So put down your phones, grab your gear, and enjoy this very adventurous area of Michigan; you’ll feel like you’ve stepped back in time.
